Kickstart Scheme Expression of Interest

You can use the form below to tell us if you're interested in hosting a Kickstart placement.

The Kickstart Scheme (external link) provides funding to employers to create job placements for 16 to 24 year olds. Employers can apply to host a Kickstart placement for up to 25 hours per week for up to 6 months.

We hope that initial placements will be underway from November 2020 onwards, subject to approval of our pilot programme bid. Unfortunately, we may not be able to support immediate requests to host a placement and interest will be dealt with on a first-come first-served basis.

If you have any further questions, you can contact the business support team or call 01942 489190.

  • By submitting this expression of interest, I confirm that I am consenting to Wigan Council contacting me with further details about the Kickstart Scheme. I am also consenting to Wigan Council sharing the details submitted with Job Centre Plus (JCP). Please note that submission of this expression of interest form does not constitute approval from Wigan Council or their willingness to support your request to host a Kickstart placement. Employers will be asked to submit a more detailed application before a decision will be made on approving a placement request.
